Repetitive strain injury (sometimes called RSI) is caused when the sufferer carries out certain tasks over and over again or holds a part of their body in a sustained or awkward position. Repetitive strain injury can include symptoms of pain, weakness and not being able to maintain a movement for a long time. If you are suffering from a repetitive strain injury that was not your fault you may start to think about claiming compensation.
